Chief of the Laboratory of Taiga Ecosystems and Biodiversity.
Doctor of Agricultural Sciences.


Scientific achievemnets: definition of ecological-phytocenotic characteristics of environment changes, regularities of growth, maturing and structure of stands under the influence of water forest reclamation, sylvicultural attendance and different kinds of cuttings; elaboration of mathematical models of soil water regime for different combinations of soil-ground types and draining net parameters; classification of excess moisture forests according to forest types, soil types, water-mineral nutrition and groups of reclamation efficiency; dynamic typology of drained forests; system of sylvicultural and forest taxation standards for assessment of forest productivity and forest resources quality; models of growth process, bucking and marketable tables of drained forests; theoretical justification of forest management and exploitation methods in reclaimed forests, criteria, rates and methods of assessment of forestry measures economic efficiency; elaboration of simulation model of forest ecosystems functioning which allows forecasting consequences of anthropogenic impacts, optimizing economic system and achieving desired aims, the model is based on comprehensive approach to studies of “ecotope-phytocenosis” system, correlations between forest flora and habitat conditions, influence of different factors on changes of ecosystem elements.

Scientific interests: ecology and nature management economics, modeling of forest and marsh ecosystems behavior under the influence of endogenous and exogenous factors.
